Mary Ann will be deeply missed by her loving husband Keith, her devoted daughter Gabriella, brother David Christian (Peggy), sister Dorothea Swain (late Stan), brother Daniel Christian (Lee Ann), sister Gloria Kasperitas (Carl), her mother-in-law Lois Potalivo, brothers-in-law Vince Potalivo (Pat), Chuck Potalivo (Paula), and Scott Potalivo (Theresa), nieces Coleen Burke (Jerry), Maureen Petrosky (Michael), KC Schafer (Sean), Sara Swain, Courtney Christian, Olivia Christian, Dakota Kasperitas, Dawn Potalivo (Shannon Rodriguez), and Maria Potalivo (Joe DeFazio), and nephews, David Christian (Christie), Travis Kasperitas, Matt Potalivo (Erin O'Rourke), Chuck Potalivo, Vincent Potalivo, and Brian Potalivo.

Mary Ann was born on July 3, 1963 in Bristol, PA. She married the love of her life, Keith, on November 18, 1989 and then welcomed their "peanut," Gabriella Marie on the same date 6 years later. Mary Ann treasured her family more than anything. They loved taking vacations together to Cocoa Beach and of course the Happiest Place on Earth. She was fond of gardening and being outside in the sunshine, especially when entertaining friends and family at their home.

Everyone loved being around her positive energy, contagious optimism, and love of life. She was a pure ray of sunshine. She truly enjoyed her job taking care of children at Holy Family Regional Catholic School, and she was an active and dedicated member of St. Francis Cabrini Parish. Mary Ann will forever be remembered in the hearts of countless friends and family as a generous and selfless person who always made those around her feel special.
